Digital Liberal Arts at Whittier College
collaborate | teach | transform
Welcome from the Director
Hello World! Welcome to Whittier’s Digital Liberal Arts Center (DigLibArts). I invite you to explore this website, where you will find a wide variety of resources. The pages “Faculty” and “Students” assemble resources for teaching, learning, and research, and our “Events” are open to all unless otherwise noted. Finally, various members of DigLibArts post to our “Blog” to describe recent work, upcoming projects, and exciting developments in the world of digital scholarship.
DigLibArts is a team project, and throughout this website you will encounter contributions from our Directors, Coordinators, Student Liaisons, Steering Committee members, and faculty partners from every division of the College. Our new technology-rich collaboratory in the center of the campus library provides a focus for our community as well as a venue for projects, classes, and events. Stop by and explore any time the library is open.
Whether you visit us online or in person, I hope you will feel welcome to share, participate, contribute, or collaborate.
Whittier’s Digital Liberal Arts Center (DigLibArts) is a collaborative initiative to enhance the liberal arts at Whittier College by empowering faculty, staff, librarians, and students to make full and better use of the digital technologies that are reshaping pedagogical approaches and transforming research throughout the liberal arts. The emerging center is designed to support and inspire faculty and students to integrate digital technologies into their teaching and research and to foster the building of relationships with other liberal arts colleges developing similar initiatives.
DigLibArts’ leadership structure is designed to be flat and collaborative, reflecting the nature of communities that develop, test, and use digital technologies in education. We believe that this structure provides the greatest opportunity for creativity across a broad set of liberal arts disciplines.
DigLibArts is generously funded by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
